Glass half full or Half empty?
« on: March 20, 2011, 01:25:02 PM »
So where are you since Roy's arrival?

Wolves at home.
Bottom of the league team, shocking away and they were  making us look terrible for an hour OR

Battled back into the game, could have won and deserved our last minute goal.

Stoke away

We concede a set piece AGAIN and are only rescued by a late goal AGAIN. OR

Finally we compete against a physical team, we dont lose against our bogey team and unlucky not to win at the death.

Blues away

We played them at the right time, after the lords mayor show and all that, they had Ferguson out and a minute before we made it 3-1, Jara could easily have gave away pen to make it 2-2. OR

Great spirit, all round team were fantastic, great goals and in control all game.

Arsenal at home

2-0 up against anyone with 20 minutes to go against injury ravaged gunners, we should go on to win and it could come back to haunt us, like west ham at home OR

We took on the potential champions got in their faces and a point is what we would all have taken.

I am torn actually, but at the same time I am glad to see Roy has made us look more solid and he is working on making us hard to beat, which we have lacked with TM and RDM.
Whenever we are playing badly, just remember -
Paul Chrichton,Neil Parsley, Andy Mcdermott, Scott Darton, Winston White,Mark Angel, Fabian DeFreitas, Paul Williams......now, do you feel better?

Half full - we need to consolidate and concentrate on staying up this season, then kick on and let Roy build his own team next year.
I would expect to see a more solid team (defensively) if he is allowed his own players in

I'm half empty but not becuase I'm disappointed by the way we are playing or our form but because of the difficult opponents we have left'

I am delighted with the way we are playing at the moment and full marks for Hodgson for giving us half a chance because under RDM I think we were certainties for relegation.

 Half full! I think we'd have lost that game yesterday with RDM & i don't like saying that as i had a lot of time for Robbie. My reasons ... he'd still have had 3 defenders on the pitch yesterday different to the ones that we did have. So, yes ... i think, although it may not always be so easy on the eye, Roy will win us more points.

Ask me when we have our first defeat under the leadership of Hodgson, it'll be then interesting to see how we bounce back.

For the moment, half full because we're starting to give ourselves a decent oppurtunity of saving ourselves.

I think Roy has done a good job so far, my only fear is that he isn't going to have enough time.   If he'd have come in 4 or 5 games before, I think we may have more than probably stopped up.

No offence to RDM but I honestly reckon we'd be bottom now with him in charge.

Seemed to lack tactical nous to think out the box.

The funny thing is that if you said a draw at the beginning of the match anyone fan would have been happy, it's the fact that we were two goals up that made it feel worse, I see it as a point gained rather than two lost.

Thee is a fog of uncertainty surounding my glass, so I can't tell whether it is half full or half empty. Perhaps it will clear by the end of April ;D
